Apply a few drops of oil to the screw head and tip. Then apply oil between the blades near the screw. Move the shears as if you were cutting with them. Use your finger to wipe a thin amount of oil on the nipper area to help dissolve any dirt and for added protection of the area. Take a cloth and wipe off any excess oil.
Make sure the scissors are set properly. The best way to check the tension is to hold the scissor by the thumb ring and let go of the finger ring. It should not drop. If your shears need adjustment, don’t over tighten the screw!
Do not throw or drop your scissors! This will damage the cutting edges and points. When not in use, be sure to store your scissors in a protective case, holster or pouch. By following these simple tips you can keep your scissors working like new!
